Indianapolis - Mr. Charles "Charlie" Guerin Wagner, born on May 5, 1933 in Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away at age 85 on February 7, 2019. Charles was married to his beloved wife Margaret "Muffy" Wagner for 62 years, with whom he raised seven children.

He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1954 and was awarded their "Man of the Year" honor in 1978. Charles served in the Army from 1954 to 1956.

He was a devout Catholic, serving as an usher and choir member at St. Pius X Catholic Church as well as at Immaculate Heart of Mary. An avid sports fan, he cheered for his Colts, Red Sox, Pacers and of course, his fighting Irish.
